Navajo Yei Figure

Yei is a shortened version of YeiBeiChei, a holy figure in the Navajo culture.

The yei figure symbolizes healing powers.

It can be depicted standing upright, curved or angled in a three-sided square.
There are male and female yei figures. Some have square heads and others round.

Appearing as Petroglyphs (Rock Art) in North America, Yei figures are often use in healing sand paintings and woven into rugs.

Yei figures fashioned into jewelry are less common so are treasures not to be passed up.

Naja

The Naja has its origin with the Moors in Spain. It is a good luck charm to ward off the evil eye. It was used often used on the browband of Moorish Horses. It is thought that it was handed down from the Spanish Moors to Mexico and then to the Navajo Indians.

It is the base of many ornate squash blossom necklaces.
